Solid Waste Division

The South Hadley Transfer Station and the compost area are closed until further notice 

This closure is to comply with the state social distancing order and to minimize possible contamination/exposure to both residents and staff. Please DO NOT leave green bags or other items at the gate. 

Curbside pick-up by Republic Services will continue as scheduled. Contact Republic Services directly to coordinate an additional weekly pick-up and subsequent subscription fee, if needed. 

Green bags are still required for trash pick-up.

Leaf-pickup / Household Hazardous Waste Day: Republic Services, the company with whom the town contracts to provide curbside pick-up, has deemed yard waste pick-up non-essential during this COVID crisis and time for social distancing. Therefore the spring yard waste collection scheduled for April/May in South Hadley has been cancelled. Administration is working on a possible alternative. The South Hadley Household Hazardous Waste Day scheduled for May 9 has been postponed until further notice.  



The Solid Waste Division of the Town of South Hadley Department of Public Works (DPW) has 2 key areas of responsibility:

  • Oversight of curbside collection and disposal of both trash and recyclables for the Town
  • Management of both the yard waste / composting site and the transfer station

Republic Services is contracted out by the town to provide curbside pickup of recyclables and trash; DPW staff manage the compost site and transfer station.

Recycling Center Stickers are now available at the DPW and the Collector's offices. The Fiscal Year 2020 trash fee must be paid in order to obtain a sticker. All payments must be made at the Collector's office or online. The DPW does not take payments for the trash fee.
